President Bill Clinton’s DNC Speech Makes Him the FactChecker-in-Chief

President Clinton - DNCFormer President Bill Clinton delivered a 50 minute substantive speech that thoroughly explained how we got here and where we are going if we elect President Obama to a second term — an economy built for the future. Along the way he eviscerated some of the biggest Republican lies over the past few weeks (and years). Lies like the $716 billion Medicare cuts [savings] and the welfare work requirement. Issue after issue, President Clinton delivered the clear honest truth to Americans and he even re-appropriated President Reagan’s famous line when he said of Republicans, “there they go again.” In his own unique style, Clinton reminded us why he was a two-term president and why he is such a popular former president.
